Kindle Oasis is Amazon’s lightest and thinnest e-book reader ever. Unlike its sibling’s flat design, Kindle Oasis sports an ergonomic design that carries the also new Page turn buttons. It’s most unique feature is the charging cover which comes out of the box with every device.
Thinnest, Lightest and Most Ergonomically Designed Kindle Ever
While other Kindle devices are already thin and light, the Kindle Oasis is made even more thinner and lighter by over 30% and 20%, respectively. Unlike the flat design of other Kindle devices, the Oasis features a handgrip which tapers to an unltrathin 0.13-inch touchscreen. Page turn buttons are strategically located at the handgrip. Without the cover, it measures 5.6″ x 4.8″ x 0.13-0.33 and weighs as light as 131 grams.
Improved Built-in LED
Like the Kindle Paperwhite and Voyage, Kindle Oasis also sports built-in lights for improved page consistency. However, instead of 4 or 6 LEDs, the Oasis is now equipped with 10 LEDs.
Kindle Oasis also has the high-resolution display of a Kindle Paperwhite. Amazon retained the 6-inch Paperwhite display technology powered by E Ink Carta. The touchscreen sports 300 pixels per inch.
The most distinct feature of Kindle Oasis is that it comes out of the box with a premium leather charging cable. The charging cover seamlessly attaches to the device and when on the go, this premium leather cover will automatically charge your device. The charging covers come in merlot, black and walnut.
Wi-fi Only and Wi-Fi + Free 3G models available
Kindle Oasis also comes in both Wi-Fi only and Wi-Fi + Free 3G model, with the latter model more expensive and just little heavier.
No Glare Display
Just like the other Kindle e-readers, the screen of the Oasis eliminates glares so reading under the bright sun will not pose any problem.
